- LG A+ 2600mah Li-ion Battery Cell
Charger: A ; Torch: C- 07/21/2013
This review is from: RAVPower® RP-PB08 Slim Power Bank (2600mAh/1A Output) w/ Built-in Flashlight, for Smartphone&Tablet:iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPhone 5, 4S, 4G;Samsung Galaxy Note 2, S3, S2;Lumia 920 and other Mobile Devices
Very compact, simple design, relatively hefty construction.
Enough of a multitasker to justify it being a daily-carry item. (emergency power AND a flashlight)
Works very well as a charger.
The flashlight on the unit I received was very finicky.
Would like to have some kind of cover for the connections on the back.
Works Great as a backup charger. Gives me more than one full charge on my old Samsung Galaxy S.
The flashlight function on the unit I received was pretty weak. There is definitely a shoddy connection with the LED; more than half the time it doesn't work when turned on, and I have to tap (or rather gently touch) the lens to get the light working. The quality of the flashlight is really no better than the $2 ones you find in the checkout lane at the supermarket.
BUT the flashlight is really supposed to be a secondary function, I guess. It still would be nice if there were a little more attention paid to the flashlight.
An RMA would cost me $11, which is darn near what I paid for the thing (on a weekend special), so I think I'll just eat the sub-par flashlight and keep the unit as is.
On a side note I think it would be nice if there were some kind of cover for the USB ports on the unit. Even just a cheap rubber cap would be better than having them exposed.
Overall a very good unit and GREAT as a charger, just don't expect a great flashlight. 3 Eggs since I expected more out of the torch.
